Minneapolis-based Miller Design Group, a specialist in in-store retail design and fixtures, has added a new partner, Paige Wittman, as the 22-year-old firm is now named the Miller Wittman Retail Design Group.
“Wittman brings 25 years of executive level sales, marketing and channel development experience to us,” said Barb Miller, founder of Miller Retail Design. “She has dedicated her career to developing powerful distribution channels and retail programs for leading brands.”
Most recently, Wittman held executive positions at the Andersen Corporation, including vice president of Sales Operations and vice president of Sales. Before joining Andersen in 2007, Paige spent nine years at Polaris Industries, where her last role was director of Retail & Dealer Development. She also held domestic and international sales management & marketing roles at Polaris, as well as The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.
“We have been asked many times to expand our business and for the first time felt like we had the correct fit to substantially broaden and deepen our business capabilities,” said owner Scott Miller. “With Wittman’s experience in executive management, sales, program development, and our experience as expert designers and project managers, we felt that we could expand in a meaningful way. This change means that we can expand our services and programs to our existing customers as well as explore other opportunities.”
Added Wittman, “Most of my career has been focused on creating successful synergy between the needs of the manufacturer and the needs of the dealers. I worked with the Miller group for many years and have been extremely impressed with their work and the customer experience they provide to dealers and manufacturers. Dealers who designed their first store with Miller remember the great experience and are coming back time and time again.”
